    Besides not fitting the E46 is heavier than the E36 so E36 springs would be unsuitable on that alone

    right ok was told that they would he was,nt sure if they were off an e36 or e46 but had a quick look and i think the codes on the apex springs was more likely to be for the e36 but the codes on these spring do come up for some e46,s. o well just waisted more money
